Jasmine Schreiber ist Schriftstellerin und studierte Biologin. Sie betreibt einen Wissenschaftspodcast; auf ihrer Instagram-Seite bezeichnet die Autorin sich selbst treffend als „Chitinfluencerin“ – und meint ebenso, sie „wäre gern ein Farn“. Diese sympathischen Eigenarten machen sich auch in Schreibers neuestem Roman „Der Mauersegler“ bemerkbar – und verleihen der Geschichte einen ganz besonderen, erdig-waldigen Grundton, der immer wieder fesselt und fasziniert. Es ist die immer präsente Naturnähe, die dem Text seine Leichtigkeit verleiht – denn im Roman geht es eigentlich um Tod, Trauer und Schuld. Wir begegnen Prometheus zum ersten Mal auf einer Autofahrt, die als Mischung von Erinnerungen, Flucht und Reflexionen beschrieben wird. Der Protagonist fährt gen Norden, reflektiert währenddessen seine bisherige Laufbahn als Arzt, seinen Erfolg – und erinnert sich an die schöne Kindheit mit seinem besten Freund Jakob. Bis die Realität plötzlich auf Prometheus hinunterprasselt – denn Jakob ist seinetwegen gestorben Sandra Falke studierte Germanistik und Religionswissenschaften an der Universität Tartu in Estland und neuere deutsche Literatur an der Philipps-Universität in Marburg an der Lahn. Auf literarische Abenteuer begab Falke sich bereits im sechsten Lebensjahr in ihrem ersten Lesetagebuch. Aus kurzgefassten handschriftlichen Notizen im linierten Schulheft sind parallel zum Bachelor-, Master- und Promotionsstudium diverse Online-Formate erwachsen. Seit 2019 werden auf sandrafalke.com wöchentlich Rezensionen und Essays zu Klassikern, Sachbüchern und Neuerscheinungen der Weltliteratur veröffentlicht. Derzeit lebt Falke in Brandenburg, schreibt Kurzgeschichten und setzt sich für die kritische Reflexion literarischer Inhalte auf diversen virtuellen Plattformen ein.

Prometheus with Jon Spaihts

A decade before his recent Oscar nomination for his work on Denis Villeneuve's Dune,  Jon Spaihts co-wrote Prometheus – a bold prequel to the Alien franchise that celebrates its tenth anniversary this month.  It was a philosophical sci-fi horror odyssey like no other, that upended expectations and made the New Yorker one of Hollywood's go-to names for science fiction drama that both provokes and thrills.You might know Jon as the man who co-wrote the first Doctor Strange movie along Scott Derrickson and past Script Apart guest C. Robert Cargill. He's also shepherded his own sci-fi worlds to the screen, such as Passengers – a Jennifer Lawrence-starring romance among the stars that hit cinemas in 2016. Prometheus was his introduction to the world, however. He'd written a couple of impressive spec scripts that got him into rooms with high-powered Hollywood directors. Ridley Scott was one of them. As you'll discover in this episode, the idea of an Alien prequel was kind of sprung on him. In an instant, he blurted out an idea for an epic that took the franchise and its mythology in a bold new direction, switching up the series' visceral frights for grand existential contemplation and freaky robots. In this fascinating conversation, Jon delves into about his original draft for the film, titled Alien: Engineers. It followed roughly the same beats as Prometheus but with a few notable exceptions. For starters, Engineers made the bold move of suggesting that Jesus Christ was an alien, and therefore related to the Xenomorph of the first movie. It also had a different ending that set up a planned trilogy of movies with these characters, which Jon explains in detail.  You might also want to listen out for Jon's pitch for a Star Wars series – one of the few sci-fi sandboxes he's not had a chance to play in yet…This is a spoiler-filled conversation – in space, no can you hear you scream that we ruined the plot for you.

Please welcome my guest of this week, scholar and visual artist Sasha Chaitow who takes us on a journey to France during the 2nd half of the 19th century where quite a few mesmerizing persona of the occult revival era can be found, Gérard Encausse (“Papus”), Stanislas de Guaita and also the main protagonist of our episode, almost forgotten Joséphin Péladan. Sasha studied art, communication and English literature in Athens and after completing her Master in Western Esotericism at the University of Exeter she did her PhD on Joséphin Péladan. Actually it was her interest in French symbolism that got her the idea to do some research on Péladan who was a prolific author with more than 100 books and influenced artists and writers of his time alike. Luckily for us all, Sasha's book on Péladan based on her PhD will be published by Theion Publishing late June or July this year and Péladan as a colourful and controversial figure as well as his work will be the main topic of our conversation. We will be talking about Péladan and his role as part of the occult revival and Sasha will point out what was different about him compared to his fellow occultists back then and how he soon found himself at odds with his colleagues due to his clear vision to de-occult occultism itself. From the Theion Publishing website (www.theionpublishing.com) With great joy we announce the forthcoming publication of Son of Prometheus by Sasha Chaitow. Based on her PhD thesis this ground-breaking in-depth study of the life and works of French esotericist Joséphin Péladan will precede her trilogy on Peladan's esoteric work and art to be released by Theion in the coming years. This book is the first scholarly study of the life and work of Joséphin Péladan that succeeds in placing it in the context of the history of Western Esotericism while also providing a clear roadmap to the entirety of Péladan's initiatory teachings and philosophy of the esoteric power of art. Responding to multiple cultural shifts in fin-de-siècle French society, Péladan authored over a hundred novels and monographs in an attempt to bring about the spiritual regeneration of society through mythopoetic art underpinned by esoteric thought. Sasha will explain how Péladan was viewed as ‘difficult' and ridiculed during his lifetime getting bad publicity. Although some fellow occultists such as Papus seemed to understand him, others like Oswald Wirth strongly opposed him and Aleister Crowley borrowed some of his ideas but at the same time wrote negatively about him. While he was almost forgotten and only briefly mentioned here and there, certain mid-20th-century Martinist and Rosicrucian groups claimed his work in order to establish their lineages. On our journey Sasha will be our guide not only through the maze of French occult societies but also through Péladan's worldview which was Neoplatonist in essence as he believed that the Late Antiquity split between religion and occultism had led to paradoxes and misunderstandings. We will also talk about the connection between Péladan and Stanislas de Guaita as Péladan acted as a mentor to de Guaita and was introduced by him to certain occult circles in the late 1880s. Eventually the two of them decided to create an initiatory Hermetic school organised in a quasi-Masonic style ultimately leading to the founding of the Cabbalistic Order of the Rosicrucian as well as to a front-page occult war in the newspapers. Sasha will give us wonderful insights into Péladan's ideas in detail and all the influences that merged within his work and point out several great projects that should be subject to further research. Furthermore, she will offer excellent advice on how anyone interested in Péladan's concepts could start out working with them as a system for self-initiation.

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2022 Europe, in Valencia: Bring a Mask

Last week, the country of Spain dropped its mandate for residents and visitors to wear masks, to ward off further infections of the Coronavirus. So, for this year's KubeCon + CloudNativeCon  Europe conference, to be held May 16 - 20th of May in Valencia, Spain, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation dropped its own original mandate that attendees wear masks, a rule that had been in place for its other recent conferences.This turned out to be the wrong decision, CNCF admitted a week later. A lot of people who already bought tickets were upset at this laxing of the rules for the conference, which could put them in greater danger of contacting the disease.So the CNCF put the mandate back in place, and offered refunds for those who felt Spain's own decision would put them in harm's way. CNCF will even send you a week's worth of N95 masks if you request them.So, long story short: bring a mask to KubeCon. And, as always, it is still a requirement to show proof of vaccination and temperature checks will be made as well.Tricky business running a conference in this time, no?In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we take a look at what to expect from this year's KubeCon EU 2022. Our guests for this podcast are Priyanka Sharma, the executive director of CNCF, and Ricardo Rocha, who is a KubeCon co-chair and computer engineer at CERN. TNS Editor-in-chief Joab Jackson hosted this podcast.We recorded this podcast prior to the discussion around masks, and at the time, Sharma said that the CNCF based the mask ruling on Spain's own country-wide mandates. "So we are being very cautious with the health requirements for the event," she said.The conference team is also keeping an eye on Russia's aggressive moves in the Ukraine, though it is unlikely that the chaos will reach all the way to Spain. Still, "this is why it's essential to always have the hybrid option .. [to] have the virtual elements sorted," Sharma said.As the CNCF flagship conference, KubeCon brings together managers and users of a wide variety of cloud native technologies, including containerd, CoreDNS, Envoy, etcd, Fluentd, Harbor, Helm, Istio, Jaeger, Kubernetes, Linkerd, Open Policy Agent, Prometheus, Rook, Vitess, Argo, CRI-O, Crossplane, dapr, Dragonfly,  Falco, Flagger, Flux, gRPC, KEDA, SPIFFE, SPIRE, and Thanos, and many many more. Most have been featured on TNS at one time or another.In this podcast, we also discuss what to expect from the virtual sessions at the conference, what to do in Valencia, the current state of Kubernetes, and we get some unofficial picks from Sharma and Rocha as to what keynotes not miss and what sessions to attend."The virtual option is great," Rocha said. "But I think the in-person conferences have have their own value. And there's a lot to be to be gained about meeting people directly and exchanging ideas and going to these events on the side of the conference as well."

His stories are singular experiences. ...They burst out of their texts with news that is strange, mysterious, beyond reason or parsing--beyond Kessel himself, it seems, who must have been as startled as anyone to see such sentences appear on his page. They are uncanny." --Kim Stanley Robinson, from his Introduction The Dark Ride collects John Kessel's best short fiction, beginning with 1981's "Not Responsible!

Herb Greenberg is a former journalist and current legend in the investing community. The first 20 years of Herb's career saw him plying his trade at some of the most recognizable publications that cover business, with stints at the Chicago Tribune, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal, among others. In 1998— a time when Americans were accessing the internet via a dial-up modem—Herb became one of the first mainstream journalists to make the leap to writing online, blazing a trail at TheStreet and MarketWatch while becoming a familiar face as a CNBC contributor. In recent years, Herb's gotten increasingly into financial research, which he describes as an opportunity to dig deep while cutting out the noise that comes with being a well-known voice in the business journalism space. He currently pens newsletters for Whitney Tilson's Empire Financial Research.  Today we talk with Herb about his dynamic career, seismic changes that have taken place in business journalism, the toxicity of social media, and the point at which a firehose of content becomes a cesspool of misinformation.

We welcome philosophers Landon Frim and Harrison Fluss to the show for a discussion on how to navigate the ecological crisis in philosophy. This episode originally appeared on the Zer0 Books YouTube channel. Support our work for $3 - $10 a month at Patreon https://www.patreon.com/torsiongroups Fluss and Frim argue the two dominant strains of thinking ecology today, Accelerationism and Gaian philosophies are ultimately inadequate frameworks because they reject the human frame as grounding politics; each seeks to subordinate the human in favor of a wholly alien other, either in the form of an anarchic nature or a dynamic technology. To transcend this strange coincidence of opposites, Fluss and Frim make the positive case for a Marxist humanism that is rationalist without being anthropocentric. This conversation is centered around their new book Prometheus and Gaia: Technology, Ecology and Anti-Humanism.

Synopsis On today's date in the year 1801, the world, or at least that portion of it seated in the Imperial Court Theater in Vienna, heard for the very first time a new ballet. The real draw that evening was the prima ballerina of the company, a certain Fraulein Cassentini. The music was by a young, emerging composer named Ludwig van Beethoven, and his ballet was called “The Creatures of Prometheus.”  The “creatures” referred to in the title are two stone statues that are brought to life by Prometheus, the legendary Greek figure who stole fire from the gods and gave it to mankind.  Beethoven's commission came from an Italian dancer named Salvatore Vigano, who had been working in Vienna since 1793, and was – like Beethoven – seeking the attention and possible patronage of the culture-loving Austrian Empress Maria Theresa. Although Beethoven's ballet was given 14 times the first season, and nine more the next, it was never published in his lifetime.  Beethoven was evidentially pleased with at least ONE of its themes, a tune he recycled twice: first in the finale of his mammoth “Eroica” and again in a set of 15 Variations for Solo Piano. Music Played in Today's Program Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) — The Creatures of Prometheus (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra) DG 453 713
